From Victoria to the world

Friday, 7 September, 2012 - 1:43 pm

Following the post of the High Holiday Services video clip, I have received great feedback which I'm very grateful for, but there was another response which I have not anticipated.

photo.JPGIn the video, I introduced the page sign, which we designed in Victoria, to be used in our shul to help congregants know the page the chazan is on so they can follow along in Hebrew or English.

Since I posted the video on YouTube two days ago, I have been contacted by over a dozen Rabbis who have come across it and wanted to know how they can order one for their shuls. Rabbis from as close as Vancouver and Spokane, as well as rabbis from places like Nuremberg, Luzern in switzerland and Shanghai in China expressed interest. 

I spoke to the carpenter and we are planning to, G-d willing, mass produce it and sell it to shuls across the globe. I'm amused by the thought that our little shul will provide tools for synagogues around the world...

Dear Rabbi,
This is absolutely remarkable! Why not make this invention available to other places of worship? Schools and universities may be interested. I see huge potential! Shabbat shalom.

he would grab a gun, jump in a ditch and die for Israel. I never heard him say he'd die for the United States.Our congressmen go on bus tours of Israel to epxerss their love. Hillary once told Netanyahu our commitment to Israel is rock-solid and forever. Boy, I never heard her say her commitment to America's jobless workers was rock solid and forever.It's absolutely humiliating the way our politicians grovel and abase themselves when the subject is Israel. I really don't think they understand that Israel is a foreign country while America is the country they were raised in and about which they took an oath to protect and defend when they ran for public office.In fact, now that I mention it, there's a lot of people on this web site who don't seem to understand that Israel is a foreign country. They start out by saying Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and our most steadfast ally and they end up concluding that American politicians need to show they are not anti-Semites by putting Israel's interests ahead of our own.
